Pregnancy & Physical Changes – Unexpected surprise:
During the nine months of pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes many transformations with some of the physical changes: Expanding belly, Weight gain, Enlarged uterus, Morning sickness and backaches. The center of mass changes with more pressure on the organs (increased weight to be carried). As a result, many women unexpectedly are surprised in a relatively short span of time during pregnancy to experience back pain, pelvic pain and urinary incontinence (leaking).
Our Lamaze-Exercise Twin Program
Tender Touch twin program not only prepares mothers with coping mechanisms during delivery (Lamaze) but also makes them fit before, during and after delivery (exercises).
Lamaze is a childbirth preparation method aimed at building confidence and teaching coping mechanisms for labor to do away with fear–tension-pain phenomena during labor. Our classes focus on pregnancy and the growth and development of the baby by our Lamaze educators for women and their partners during the last trimester of pregnancy which prepares them for labor and birth.
Exercise: The more active and fit you are during pregnancy, the easier it will be for you to adapt to your changing shape and weight gain. It will also help you relax your body to cope with labor and get back into shape after the birth. Examples of exercises are: Squats (help open the pelvis during labor); Pelvic tilts (strengthen the abdominal muscles and help reduce back pain); Kegels (tone the muscles in the pelvic floor and prevent leaking urine); Gentle Body relaxation Massage (Scalp, Spine, Shoulder, Foot), etc.
Benefit of exercises During Labor:
